    " Lynne Cox seems to have become a better writer since Grayson. Altho' the last chapter about the flying of the plane goes on for a bit. I liked how she paralleled the Amundsen story with her swimming achievements. "

    " The historical parts were interesting...the stuff about the author's cold-water swims, not so much. Needed more focus--and Amundsen deserves a book of his own, not this memoir/biography mishmash. "
